Spring Work

I finished a second flower bed area yesterday.

We do not have very good grass in our yard, but the clover and bermuda grass is starting to green up and will still have a nice appearance, as long as the flower beds are renewed. I dug the bermuda grass away from this bed and left a border of soil to make it easier to mow.

I added mulch and this is the final product.

I sprinkled fertilizer on the ground, prior to applying mulch.

I recently bought a birthday gift for my son-in-law from NanBrook Antique store. It is a favorite place for me to shop, and they always give you a little gift when you buy something. This time it was a box of Impatien seeds, mixed in a planting medium, that can be sprinkled on the ground and raked in. Imagine my surprise, and pleasure, to find this was their gift for the season.

My plan is to wait until mid-April and plant them under the tree. The tree leaves will be coming out to provide shade by that time, the fertilizer will be there to feed them, and since the box says they will grow in ten days, that gets them closer to our frost free date for this area (May 5th).

Impatient seeds.

Impatien seeds.

“Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but the woman that feareth (respects and honors) the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.” Proverbs 31:30-31
